Chandigarh, Dec. 10 -- Himachal Pradesh chief minister Jai Ram Thakur is known for his cool demeanour, but he was let frowning by the party councillors at an event held in Shimla for inauguration of a lift connecting Circular Road with Mall Road. The BJP councillors led by city mayor Kusum Sadrate urged the state government to hand over the lift being run by the Himachal Pradesh Tourism Corporation to the municipal corporation and construct an overbridge on Cart Road. Thakur did not like their suggestions and snubbed the councillors, saying that the corporation was unable to manage the parking lots around the town and still wanted the additional responsibility of running the lift.
